Coaches play the curious game of oversigning in college football
Tue Mar 17, 2009
This year, Saban and his staff won't need to hope for so much attrition. The focus will instead be on Oxford and Chapel Hill, where North Carolina coach Butch Davis signed 29 players despite losing only 12 seniors last season. Since the season ended, the Tar Heels have lost another nine players for a variety of reasons. Davis, like most of the coaches who embrace oversigning, is confident he'll make the numbers work. "What you're trying to do is target kids that want to come to the University of North Carolina," Davis said.
